1) Rats/mice coming out of nowhere
2) Public speaking (I suppose I've improved over the years with practice but I still can get really nervous when I have to speak in front of an audience)

Ohhhhh, I would so kill the zombies! I'd be really good at it. I've thought about it a lot. (We just watched Shaun of the Dead this morning, lol. Which rocks, btw.) Vampires, too...if I didn't decide to ask one to turn me, that is. :twisted:

Now, malevolant ghosts?? Demons?? :shock: Scary. :shock:

Laura, I concur that Shaun of the Dead rocks; and the best friend in the film has a part in Pirate Radio!

Recently I saw one of my fears happen in front of me; a guest visiting where I work dropped her key ring into one of the grates! It had her house, garage and car keys on it and she estimated the replacement costs to be close to $400.00! Between myself and three other people, we chipped the cement seal off, pried up the grate and had to use magnets, tools and finally a shop vac to get the keys out. Wah-hoo! My husband laughed the first time I told him this was a fear of mine so I called him and said "SEE!?"

He still laughed. I still grip my keys extra tight when I walk by a grate.

Agreed. I have the most terrifying mouse story...god, just thinking about it makes me tremble a bit.

I'm also scared of takeoff and landing on airplanes. Not the flight itself or anything, just the takeoff and landing. It freaks me out, I usually need to like close my eyes and tell myself that everything will go smoothly.

Not only is Nick Frost in it, but Bill Nighy who played Shaun's stepDad is too. :)

I thought you were going to say you were afraid of grates because of seeing IT........ :twisted:

Oh me too, Songbird! I'm fine in the air but take off and landing terrify me. Like hold my breath, grip the armrests and try not to cry scary.

No, you are not weird. Well, actually you are a bit weird, but not about loving airplanes. It's just the way you spell it that makes you weird! :P

When I was little, I got really confused over this. I thought airplanes and aeroplanes were different types of planes.

Thing that scares me the most - cars with electronic windows. Apparently, if your car drives into a river/lake etc., you can't open the doors until your car is fully submerged. So obviously you should climb out the window. But cars these days seem to only have electronic windows, and I don't want to be waiting for my car to fully submerge!

I saw a show about this, Gracie. IIRC there was something about the pressure on your doors AND windows when your car is in water... I think the trick is opening your windows a bit to let water in and equalize pressure on either side of the door...Hopefully, you'll never need this info! :hug:

They sell these little devices that you can use to break the window in such a predicament. That'd be a scary scenario for me, because I can't swim :shock:

Yep, hubby got me one...now if only I could remember what it's called.....you set it against the glass and pull back and let go and -bam! Supposed to break the glass.
Is it a center punch??

That would be just horrific. I am afraid of that entire scenerio. Thank goodness I live in a desert...not much chance of that happening. :roll:
